Have you ever read "No Parachute", Dark_Canuck? During the "Cambrai Offensive", Camel-flyer and author Arthur Gould Lee got shot down/was forced to land twice on one day. He almost cursed the brass for letting the Camel fly gound attacks, and he lost a friend in the first mission. In the thickest fog, they flew to drop their bombload. Lee could only just evade a factory chimney that suddenly appeared in front of him. His friend was found, when the mist cleared up. He had run into a tree and died.
